August Challenge reveal – Sketch inspiration

by | Aug 1, 2022 | Challenges

Welcome to the reveal of our August challenge.

This month is all about sketches with a pop of sparkle.
Let’s see what the design team have created …

Hi Everyone
Louise here.

Here’s a 9×12 sketch that you could easily adapt to a 12×12 if you prefer.

Here is my inspiration page: Highlights

The Moody Blues collection from Uniquely Creative is great for those boy layouts but still has some super pretty florals and butterflies.

To add a little sparkle, I’ve covered the papers with Nuvo Glitter gel and spread it with a spatula.

As always I really look forward to seeing your creations.

Happy crafting
Louise xo

Hi there
Julie here
This is the sketch I have chosen for this months challenge.
It is from PageMaps
and this is my layout
I have made a couple of slight changes.
I have used one photo instead of two.
My embellishments are on a diagonal from top right to bottom left,
the sketch has the embellishments on the right hand side of the layout.
My title is under the photo, the sketch has the title above the photo.
I have used a paper from the Bee Arty – Bee The Sunshine range
this paper is Painted Honeycomb.
I have used an assortment of Washi Tapes to create the strips across the layout
and the small cluster in the bottom left of the page.
 I have covered the “all things sparkle” by having lots of sparkle in the washis.
I added a row of lace to the strips for a little added texture.
These were scattered diagonally across my layout.
A little more bling with some tiny pink gems amongst the scatter.
were painted white and added to the layout.
I die cut the title from black cardstock using Uniquely Creative’s
Small Lower Case Alpha dies
and Die-Namics Little Numbers die.
A double scribbly border using my fountain pen finishes this layout off.
Here is my process video
I hope you enjoy watching it.
I hope you have as much fun as I did playing with this sketch
Till next time
Stay safe
